My name is Lena Warnock?!???

Well, I'm starting this blog for two reasons - I love to write, and I love to tell people about happenings in my life. A lot of new things have been happening in my life lately. I got married on May 19th - that's a little over a month of being a newlywed.

Much to my surprise, I married the man I never thought I would marry. Not that it's a bad thing, that pretty much describes our relationship. We started out as friends, casually dated, then realized that we were in the middle of something absolutely amazing. It didn't take us long to realize it - a whopping 3 months! We thought about waiting a year until we got engaged, but then we realized that we didn't need to wait. Our families and friends knew it would be coming, they just may not have thought it was coming so soon. Well, we sure did fool them. Brad proposed in front of my entire family on March 25th, 2006, and it was truly one of the most magical moments of my life.

We decided to have a long engagement - and boy, am I glad! Having more than a year to plan the wedding was wonderful! Although during those last couple of months, I got pretty ansy!

My wedding day was the most beautiful day - lots of sunshine and cool breezes. I wanted an extremely southern wedding, well, because I adore everything about the south! The wedding ceremony was beautiful - and short, too! Even though Brad and I saw each other before the ceremony (for the sake of our nerves and to take pictures), I was STILL a nervous wreck! It was truly a wonderful ceremony! The reception was FABULOUS! My family worked for months to make everything come together. There was lots of good food, good wine, and lots of the southern staple food - SWEET TEA!!!

Everyone tells you it will go by so fast, and they are so right. I felt like the entire day was over in a matter of seconds. An amazing matter of seconds...

Brad and I had a lovely honeymoon in Charleston, South Carolina. If you know me, I can't go above the Mason-Dixon line without lots of preparations. Charleston is everything I thought it would be - historic, beautiful, extremely southern, and full of life. I do hope to retire there someday.

Now, I'm getting used to being a wife. I find it hard to say "Lena Warnock," and things like "My husband..." but I have my whole life to get used to it. I love learning little things about Brad that I never knew before. I like learning to cook together, and even when it doesn't taste that good, it's the thought that counts. And I love dreaming about becoming a momma - don't worry, it won't be that soon. Sooner than later, if I have it my way.
